my earth today a desert arizona earth. we go to flagstaff, we go to jerome, we go to phoenix. in flagstaff we go to the boat house, the view, the view, we go to the mountain, we go to the view, we look to the canyon, the river–landmarks of loss. then phoenix to old friends, to the bar, the casino, the garden, the smog, to the airport, to the buildings, american stores or dreams, to the sun, to the dirt, to the air conditioning. in arizona we go to goodbye, we go to hello old friend, hello old earth, new dirt, new grief, new earth, my earth.
